I have had a wayler ypsi since the early 80's which I took to Mauritius but I have lost the centre board and back fin, can anyone help me with some details of shape and size to manufacture for replacing them. Perhaps these items are for sale, let me know. Much appreciated as I am dieing to get back on the water. Thanks Piers

Sorry can't help with parts for your Ypsi, your post got me thinking about my 1st board it was a Wayler Breeze 200L I think the breeze was the sportier board in the range it had footstraps and a fully battened 5.9 sail, once u got it planing I reckon another 5 knots and u were overpowerd. The whole package cost $950 back in the 80's mum & dad thought I was crazy but back then windsurfers were everywhere and shops to. One of my best memeries with the breeze was to sail it around Ramond Iland in the annual race I had to tack and tack and tack for 3.5 hours and didn't get planing once. I then moved onto the Wayler Fencer epoxy! Anyone else remember the Fencer?

I have a 103 Mistral Syncro great alround board, they have bigger sizes and I think they have the option to go single back strap still. But the Fencer tri fin and sliding mast track, what a board

There's a Starboard Aero 117 litre on the Buy & Sell, they were made for light wind wave days.

jeesus, the ypsi uses a standard algaier daggerboard system still in use today and if you wish to resurrect your ypsi contact your local windsurfing dealer if they are on the pulse, or as a last resort p.m. me as i know know more about old crappy windsurfing euro junk than any australian alive today! if anyone doubts me, then lets start a seperate thread about hardware for old crap! if anyone cares anyone for a 'sodim salsa' fin replacement or a 'stip holiday' mast base reworking.

Ahhh, Sodims....now they were a board. Do you remember the one that had a fin sticking out horizontally from each rail? However, I'll take you on as chief old board nerd of Australia.....particularly if I get to drive up the coast and get my mag collection out (I've got ones from about '78 with me now). The RRD Longrider and some of the Konas use Allgier centreboards. Maybe you could email the companies and get a snapshot and dimensions and build one; even in ply it would be better than the original.

Hey Greeny, remember the old Mystere boards some shonky imported? I ended up with a "Shuttle" as my first "short" board after a One design. The guy I got it off said it would all fit together, bull****!!!!! Took me a week of fiddling and modifying just to get the mast base into the board. Ah, the pangs of naivety still run deep.

DUDE!!! 1970s windsurfing magazines!!!! You RULE!! How about digitizing them and posting them online for all to share? If you set your camera on a tripod and position the mag right, it should just be a question of pressing the button, turning the page, pressing the button...shouldn't take long. PULEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZE!!!!

That Wayler board is from a Wayler allrounder - the Ypsi had the Allgier DB which retracts fully. WWilly, I'm hoping to digitise the mags but since I'm also after a small favour from the old copyright holder of many of the best of them, I've got to hang on for a little while. If/when they go up, it will be on lbws.com
